Question 7: What is sin?
Answer: Sin is violating God’s law.
Prove it.

Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

I John 3:4

“Trans” means across. Sinning is going across the boundaries of God’s law with ag”gression.” Two broad categories of sin are sins of “omission” and sins of “commission,” which are, respectively, any lack of conformity to, or transgression (violation) of, the law of God. In other words, both doing bad, and failing to do good, are sin.

Other verses to consider:

And if a soul sin, and commit any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of the LORD; though he wist it not, yet is he guilty, and shall bear his iniquity.

Leviticus 5:17

Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

James 4:17
